About the EJEA conference

Japan’s AI-related research

Japan’s AI-related research is based on the “Integrated Innovation Strategy 2021” and the “AI Strategy 2019: AI for All People, Industries, Regions, and Governments” which led to the formation of the "AI Japan R&D Network".

This network aims to further enhance Japan's AI-related research capabilities and promote social implementation of research results. Emphasizing the importance of collaboration between universities and public research institutes, the network encourages institutions to leverage their respective strengths.

This network was established in 2019 by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT). Kagawa University and Shinshu University belong to the “AI Japan R&D Network”.

The EU’s approach to AI

The EU’s approach to AI centers on excellence and trust, aiming to boost research and industrial capacity while ensuring safety and fundamental rights. "The European Commission's AI Strategy (2018)" prioritizes excellence by fostering innovation, proposing regulations to ensure ethical AI development and deployment, and encouraging collaboration between research organizations and companies as well as collaboration among research centers and investing in research at the EU level.

The European AI Strategy aims to unlock the full potential of AI for societal good while mitigating potential risks, shaping the responsible future of AI.
